梅志勇 Mei Zhiyong
Born in 1984 in Shangdong, China, founder of Fuzztape label and member of Nojiji noise group. Meizhiyong is one of the most important international noise experimenters and hardware noise instrument DIYERs in China. He is also active in independent film and photography. Meizhiyong considers noise as the carrier to break all the rules. Only impaling into nothingness can make you get rid of the contradiction between voice and body, and between body and mind. Strong physical action and the obsession of electronic / industrial pieces modification make each of his live performance unique.
Mei Zhiyong has toured in Europe, Japan and China several times since 2014. He is now becoming the new blood of the noise and the experimental music scene in Asia.
